Monitoring temperatures
 
Hi all. I am wondering how do I monitor my CPU temp without going into the BIOS? I would like to check what my temps are because I just installed a Corsair H60 and used the motherboards easy overclock utility.

I like Hardware Monitor

Ok I downloaded HW Monitor. Is 34C min and 50C max safe temperature ranges? I got those readings after a quick Starcraft II match.

well it depends your running an i5-2500k right?so what was it overclocked to and what was the voltage it took to get there

Pabz0r545 September 21, 2011 05:56 PM

Yes correct. i5 2500k. It wasn't previously overclocked it was just how it came. This is my first build which I set up a little under a weed ago.

I decided to try out the easy 1 click overclock from my motherboard. I'm using an ASRock P67 Extremem4 Gen3. It's like a turbo boost function? I decided to try it with the lowest setting to clock it up to 4.0 ghz. Nothing seems to be acting funny so far. I didn't want to try any of the higher settings because I'm str8 n00b y0! sorry the 1998 online gamer in me took over for a second. :)

Take a look in here: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...ols-trade.html

I use coretemp myself, as it has a plug-in for my G19 keyboard. My temps are always onscreen.

Are you using HWMon or Open hardware monitor?
Open Hardware Monitor - CPU Temperature, Fan Speed and Voltages in a Free Software Gadget

I find the gadget function in open to be great.

CPUID's HWMonitor.......


still noone said if that is a safe temperature.

50c at load for a 2500 is perfectly fine.
